What rights does a natural father have in an adoption case? How does the court decide between the conflicting claims of each parent? In many ways is a heart-reading story as Henry Cecil steers us through the labyrinths of adoption law but tension is relieved by his touches of humour right through to the unexpected outcome. Henry Cecil was born near London in 1902 and was called to the Bar in 1923. Later in 1949 he was appointed at a County Court Judge, a position he held until 1967. He used these experiences as inspiration for his work. His books are works of great comic genius with upredictable twists of plot which highlight the often absurd contradictions of the legal system. He died in 1976.
